Best case scenario it might create pressure on the GOP moderates to allow Mueller to complete his investigations.

This hasn't aged well.

It breaks my heart and makes me so angry at the same time. So many deaths, but also so many permanently scarred human beings.

This is exactly how I feel about the 800 deaths per day from abortion.

Has Trump shut Mueller down yet? No (despite Nunes's gaslighting attempts with his half baked memo).

But yes, the book sunk without a trace like it probably deserved.

You're not great at conversation and understanding opposing perspectives, huh?

I was f-ing agreeing with you and your empathy about how precious life is, you partisan hack.

An analysis by The Associated Press shows the nation’s six big Wall Street banks saved at least $3.59 billion in taxes last quarter, thanks to the recently enacted Trump tax law.
Banks typically kick off the earnings season, and their reports for the January-March quarter are giving investors and the public their first glimpse into how the new tax law is impacting Corporate America. Banks historically paid some of the highest taxes, due to their U.S.-centric business model. Before the Trump tax cuts, these banks paid between 28 to 31 percent of their income each year in corporate taxes.
The results show why banks supported the tax overhaul. Tax rates at banks such as JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley dropped to between 17 and 23 percent.

It's easy to not find collusion when you go out of your way to not even interview key potential witnesses (Cohen, Trump Jr, etc) that are currently in Mueller's crosshairs.

I would suggest taking a look at https://twitter.com/SethAbramson (he's followed by dozens of reporters for media sources across the political divided). He's been doing a pretty good job of connecting dots, in an impartial tone, and has been pretty good for being clear about what is known and what is conjecture.

ps: wrt your tax cuts:

“There is still a lot of thinking on the right that if big corporations are happy, they’re going to take the money they’re saving and reinvest it in American workers,” he says. “In fact they bought back shares, a few gave out bonuses; there’s no evidence whatsoever that the money’s been massively poured back into the American worker.”

“The future is going to happen,” he says. “I have no problem with bringing back American car-manufacturing facilities, but, whether they’re American robots or Mexican robots, they’re going to be highly automated.” -- Rubio

How Canada works:

- Family owns chocolate factory in Syria
- Factory gets bombed
- They lose everything
- Canadians sponsor them
- They move to town of 4,000 people
- Dad starts making chocolate in basement
- Word spreads

They now make 250,000 pieces of chocolate a month

Not sure if they consider that the GTA includes Kitchener-Waterloo for this but the bulk would be in Toronto. Every other week there is a news story about a tech company opening an A.I. lab downtown for example.

The city saw 28,900 tech jobs created, 14 percent more than in 2016, for a total of more than 241,000 workers, up 52 percent over the past five years, CBRE said. Downtown, tech accounted for more than a third of demand for office space.
